This motor has 3 year limited warranty, the first year being with GateMotors, the remaining years being direct with the manufacturer. The motors themselves have a 3 year limited warranty all other electrical items have a 1 year warranty, see the warranty FAQ page for more details.
The GateMotors Aster Ram; electromechanical electric gates rams are a cost effective method of gate automation. They are ideal where the gates are hung in the middle of the posts, or close to the edge of the pillars (see diagrams on the Technical Info page). The rams are non-reversible and therefore don’t need the inconvenience or expense of an additional electric lock to keep them closed.
You can achieve up-to 110° opening angles, depending on hinge position and model in use; suitable for gate openings from 4m-7m (2m to 3.5m per leaf) and up to a combined gate weight of 350Kg. These motors are only suitable for inward opening gates.
The GateMotors Aster Ram is designed for intensive use; motors are constructed of quality die-cast aluminium with stainless steel, bronze and steel parts.
The fluid-grease lubrication system, polyester powder-paint coating, self-lubricating worm gear and built-in thermal protection system ensure quiet operation and a long working life in all weather conditions, without the need for periodic maintenance.
These diagrams show the gates closed and the operator mounting brackets fixed to the back face of each pillar (from inside the property).
The Aster Ram operator and bracket are positioned so as dimensions A & B comply to the installation instructions supplied with the kit.
With all linear automation (straight arm motor) the laws of geometry do apply. These are a series of measurements that aid the motors to pivot on its triangular mounting bracket. If the measurements are not achieved, the motor will not pivot on its bracket and the gate will fail to achieve its full opening angle.
Below pictures are birds-eye views of two types of typical gate leaf mounting:
Dimensions to Achieve
The values are dependent on the Aster Ram model selected.
For the Aster Ram 3 (2m max per leaf)
A = 145mm
B = 145mm
For Aster Ram 4 (2.75m max per leaf)
A = 195mm
B = 195mm
For Aster Ram 5 (3m max per leaf)
A = 245mm
B = 245mm
IF DIMENSIONS FOR THE INSTALLATION ARE NOT ACHIEVED, THE MOTOR(S) WILL FAIL AND MAY BREAK. DAMAGES TO THE MOTOR(S) RESULTING FROM INADEQUATE INSTALLATION IS NOT COVERED UNDER OUR 1 YEAR GUARANTEE
When fitting the gate brackets to a wooden gate, we recommend that you insert stainless steel tubing (just large enough to sleeve the mounting bolt threads, and 1mm shorter than the thickness of the wood) through the gate mounting holes.
This will prevent over-tightening of the mounting bolts, and also avoid the repetitive push-pull on the mounting bolts from damaging the wood.
If you only have a single gate and you are not sure if you need a right-hand or left-hand motor?
The motor is usually mounted on the inside of the property for security; so view the gates from inside the property looking outwards (the gates will normally, but not always, swing toward you).
If the hinge appears on the left, you need a left-hand motor; if it's on the right you need a right-hand motor.
For more information on the electrical cabling requirements for this system please see our electric gate cabling guide.
Please Note: It is solely the responsibility of the recipient or the client / specifier – to ensure that the products described are suitable for purpose (see fitting guide under downloads) & comply with the relevant building regulations.
